This is me and a friend with K. A. Applegate, author of the Animorphs series. Animorphs, Harry Potter, the Julie of the Wolves books, and Harriet the Spy are what made me want to be a writer. 981 more words

Literary Linking 19/04/15

I’m a bit late again this week, so apologies. I’ve had a super-busy couple of weeks at work, as we had a major software release last week, and my sister’s visiting from Canada, so I’m writing this while she sleeps off her jetlag ;) As a result, I’ve read fewer bookish articles than usual this week, but there’s still several good ones I want to share. 283 more words
